On Sunday, Feb. 12, the NFL will crown a new champion when Super Bowl 57 takes place at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
The hallowed Lombardi Trophy will not be the only piece of hardware handed out amidst the confetti, Gatorade, and celebrations. The MVP of the Super Bowl will also be honored and receive the Pete Rozelle Trophy, which is named after former NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle.
Last year, Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp took home Super Bowl LVI MVP honors as he and the Rams rallied to defeat the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20 at SoFi Stadium.
In the win, Kupp recorded eight catches for 92 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-winning touchdown with 1:25 left.
Who will take the honor this year?
Long MVP Odds for Big Game Losers
In all likelihood, the MVP will come from the winning team.
A Most Valuable Player award has been given out at every Super Bowl, starting with the first one in 1967. In over five decades, there has been only one Super Bowl MVP from the losing team.
In Super Bowl V, the Dallas Cowboys lost to the Baltimore Colts (now the Indianapolis Colts). But in a sloppy game that featured 11 total turnovers–seven by the winning team–Cowboys linebacker Chuck Howley was named MVP after recording two interceptions and a forced fumble.
That was 52 years ago, and barring the unlikely, that streak will continue.
This weekend, the NFL playoffs will get underway, with 14 teams vying to lift the Lombardi Trophy and be etched into NFL history.
So, which players are likely to take home the Pete Rozelle Trophy next month?
Here is how Super Bowl MVP odds stack up as we look ahead to the wild-card round.

Who has won Super Bowl MVP the most times?
Brady leads the way with five. Two years ago, Brady took Super Bowl MVP honors as the Bucs defeated the Chiefs in Super Bowl 55 at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium.
The only other player with more than two is Joe Montana. Montana picked up three during the San Francisco 49ers’ run of four titles in nine seasons.
Three other players also have two, and all three, like Brady and Montana, are quarterbacks.
Like Montana (and eventually Brady), two of the three are already in the Hall of Fame, and the third at some point: Bart Starr of the Green Bay Packers (I and II), Terry Bradshaw of the Pittsburgh Steelers (XIII and XIV), and Eli Manning of the New York Giants (XLII and XLVI).
Has anyone won Super Bowl MVP in back-to-back years?
To date, Starr and Bradshaw are the only two players to win the award in back-to-back years.
Which position has won Super Bowl MVP the most?
As with the NFL MVP, quarterbacks have dominated the award, winning it 31 of 55 times.
Wide receivers come in next with eight wins, followed by running back with seven. Linebacker (four), defensive end (two), and safety (also two) have been the most frequent winners on the defensive side of the ball.
Which positions have never won Super Bowl MVP? No offensive linemen or kickers have, but that is not a major surprise. On the other hand, in what may come as a surprise to some, no tight ends have.
The lone return man to win the award, Green Bay’s Desmond Howard is one of only four players to win both the Heisman Trophy and Super Bowl MVP. Roger Staubach, Jim Plunkett, and Marcus Allen are the other three.
Here is a breakdown of Super Bowl MVP winners by position:
- Quarterback: 31 (Most Recent: Bucs QB Tom Brady in Super Bowl LV in 2021)
- Running Back: 7 (Most Recent: Denver Broncos RB Terrell Davis in Super Bowl XXXII in 1998)
- Wide Receiver: 8 (Most Recent: Rams WR Kupp in Super Bowl LVI in 2022)
- Tight End: Never
- Offensive Line: Never
- Defensive End: 2 (Most Recent: Chicago Bears DE Richard Dent in Super Bowl XX in 1986)
- Defensive Tackle: 1 (Dallas Cowboys DT Randy White in Super Bowl XII in 1978 – shared)
- Linebacker: 4 (Most Recent: Broncos LB Miller in Super Bowl 50 in 2016)
- Cornerback: 1 (Dallas Cowboys CB Larry Brown in Super Bowl XXX in 1996)
- Safety: 2 (Most Recent: Bucs S Jackson in Super Bowl XXXVII in 2002)
- Kicker/Punter: Never
- Kick/Punt Returner: 1 (Green Bay Packers WR/KR/PR Desmond Howard in Super Bowl XXXI in 1997)
Who is the last defensive player to win Super Bowl MVP?
To date, linebacker Von Miller is the last defensive player to be named Super Bowl MVP.
Miller, now with the Los Angeles Rams, helped lead the Denver Broncos to a 24-10 win over the Carolina Panthers. In the win, Miller had six tackles and two sacks and forced two fumbles.
Which players have won NFL MVP and Super Bowl MVP in the same season?
Only five players have pulled off the sweep in the same season: Starr (1966), Bradshaw (1978), Montana (1989), Emmitt Smith (1993), and Kurt Warner (1999).
Thirteen players have won both in their career, with Mahomes being the most recent member. He won NFL MVP in 2018, then bagged the Pete Rozelle Trophy two years ago when the Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers to win their first title in 50 years.
Has the Super Bowl MVP ever even been shared?
That has happened only once. The Cowboys defeated the Denver Broncos to win Super Bowl XII, with a dominant defensive effort–eight forced turnovers, four sacks, 156 total yards allowed–leading the way in the win.
After playing a key role in the victory, defensive end Harvey Martin and defensive tackle Randy White shared the award.
Has a rookie ever won Super Bowl MVP?
To date, no rookie has won the award. Purdy, who has the fourth-best Super Bowl 57 MVP odds entering the playoffs, was the final pick of the 2022 NFL Draft, a.k.a. “Mr. Irrelevant.”
